For virtual training, cadets are asked to wear their I Am 810 Tshirt(if you have one). For those who do not have this shirt, a navy blue tshirt or nice shirt is recommended. 
 
You do not need to do anything, supply staff will find you when it is time to be measured.
The Cadet Dress Regulations outlines the standards to meet with wearing the uniform. How to lace boots, tie a tie, sew badges, how to wear your hair, etc.

See: Cadet Dress Regulations

UNIFORM CARE

DO NOT cut pant legs, they must be hemmed only.  
DO NOT glue badges onto the tunics, they must be sewn only.

Washing - your cadet uniform washes very well and looks better the more it is washed.  It is expected that all parts of your uniform are washed regularly and you should be washing your short sleeve shirt every week.
